Stampin up retreat May 2013

I have been busy - sorry about my long gap between posts but all my creating had to be secret until this last weekend.
My friend Emma and I hosted a Stampin up retreat at my usual retreat venue The Beamsley Project in Bolton Abbey, North Yorkshire.
Our venue is clean, comfortable with shared facilities with a simple home cooked menu prepared from fresh by our very own Chef. Each one of our guests received £100 of Stampin up stash to use throughout their visit and take home the rest. 
It cost just £190 per person.
Emma even made bought some gorgeous bags and personalised them in her own Lovelies style.
Here is 2 of the projects we made over the weekend - I will share more as the week goes on.

 We wanted a little scrapbooking in the weekend - this was my version of this deep frame.
Emmas was totally different as was everyone elses! I love it when styles take over and the end product is so personal.
This was one of Emmas projects - I adored this totally and copied it shamelessly !
I have permission to do this with my ladies group so watch this space!
I totally love all the tiny little stamps involved in this project.
We had such fun this weekend and so look forward to doing a full Stampin up weekend in May 2014.

Hope your weekend has been filed with crafty fun too xx
